A look at Nintendo's North American makeover for Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

I noticed that Rusty Slugger looked kinda off-putting in the new Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball screens, but I didn’t realize that he was off-putting in a different way from his Japanese counterpart Inuji until a reader pointed it out.

Yep, he’s been redressed and reskinned with some big USA Cartoon Eyes for the American release.

I’m pretty sure it’s a good change, despite the fact that I kind of just don’t like looking at him. If the Japanese character were released as-is over here, he would be perceived as an insulting caricature of Japanese people. (3DS, Nintendo)
